Renewing one's passport is not a pleasant chore, but it has to be done.
Especially now that travel has become very affordable not only here but
abroad as well, many are willing to queue up patiently to get a passport.
For first timers, the requirements are tedious and many, and this includes
the birth certificate, marriage certificate if applicable, both
authenticated by the National Statistics Office plus all
the clearances needed. Those merely renewing their passports have it
easier, but like everyone else, they still have to renew.
